Israel’s Prime Minister has told the President of the Palestinian Authority  that he can choose peace with Israel or renounce the Doha Agreement signed with Hamas this week.

In his remarks on his Facebook page, Benjamin Netanyahu criticized Mahmoud Abbas’s reconciliation with Hamas, saying that it is “an organisation that seeks to destroy Israel and continues to get armed”. He added that “Abu Mazen can’t form a coalition with Hamas.”

Netanyahu called on the Palestinian Authority to choose between peace with Israel or coalition with the Islamic Resistance Movement “because Hamas and peace do not go together”
